Pilot



That was a damn good opening. I loved the way the Pilot episode was edited. It gave us a ton of insight into the main characters as well as the secondary characters without it getting overly long with exposition. It was tight. In and out with the barest of info, but enough to fill in the blanks yourself and then keep the main thrust of the story moving forward. While watching the Pilot, I, and probably 99% of those that tuned in were asking themselves "how can they continue this for more than 1, maybe 2 seasons long". Well, without spoiling it for anyone that has yet to watch it, the last 5 minutes of the Pilot pretty much sets up the entire season and it could concievably run for 5 seasons if need be with the amount of people involved....thus the title 'The Following'.

I'm definitely on board for this and I hope that it does well enough to sure it's survival as a series. Kevin Bacon was great. As for the guest star in this one....

I wanted to like this. The trailer looked awesome and I always like Mr. Bacon.

And it was probably a good episode, but unfortunately I have zero interest in the detective, CSI, cop type shows.

It's not for me.

It's bloody as hell. I for sure thought that this would be something you be somewhat interested in. It's got Kate Upton eating a hamburger in it!!

Chapter Two



Trying to figure out what the end game here is and as I was watching Chapter Two play out, I knew that the only way that Joe could stay one step ahead of everyone would be that someone high up on the political ladder would be the mole. So, when I saw the new FBI Cult Expert, she was just the first in what I believe will be a long line of moles. Even though nothing has been said or hinted at, I see the Mole Ladder going much higher....as high as the State Governor perhaps? Maybe even higher, but why. That's the question....what is the end game and why.

The Poet's Fire




The most shocking thing about The Following isn't the plot. It's how much FOX is able to get away with when showing graphic violence. Even I was taken aback when they showed the officer getting the knife plunged into his neck and bleeding out. I'm pretty jaded to this stuff because in movies, it's just par for the course, but in TV shows, yeah I do expect it to be watered down somewhat with creative editing and cutaways. As for the rest of the episode, I knew that the Wife was in on it. It screamed 'set up' and I also knew that the flashback scene with her getting stabbed was just part of the whole picture of them "practicing". But the most disturbing thing in the episode was the end when the captors were teaching the little boy how to kill. Now THAT was sick.

Mad Love



Prior to this episode, my thoughts on the 3 Kids (Jacob, Emma and Paul) looked like they would be where the cracks would form and giving the Cops a viable lead down the road. But after this episode, it's just a question of who is going to turn on who and when. I don't think it will last much longer before someone flips due to jealousy. The did pull a fast one on me with the ending. I for was for sure convinced that Paul and Emma killed the hostage by way of stabbing. But to find out later that they tied her back up and left her for Jacob was something I didn't see coming. And then have Paul and Emma welcome him back (into the shower) was strange, but fitting as they aren't ready to give up on him. Somethings gonna give...and soon.
